Galatians 3 – Part 2
10. Getting the gospel right requires logical thinking. 10.1 – God is a logical being, Who has created everything and communicated through His Scriptures in a logical way. The Laws of Logic 1. Law of Identity – the meaning and scope of X is bound by the context/argument in which it is found. ( i.e. the authors context, not yours!) 2. Law of non-contradiction – X cannot equal non-X in the same context/argument. 3. Law of the Excluded Middle – Though X cannot equal non-X in the same context, that doesn’t mean there are only two choices since it is possible for non-X to be more than one thing. 4. The Law of Rational Inferences – valid premises or truths can be used to draw valid conclusions of like kind (i.e. of the same scope of certainty).
